Hi5 makes celebrating your co-workers quick, easy and most importantly - FUN

Pros: I love how easy it is to use this software. Every feature has been designed with ease of use and speed in mind. I don't have a lot of spare time on my hands, so finding time to review colleagues or give praise - but with Hi5, I can do that in less than 5 minutes. They also strive to make HR - something that is painful and boring - into something fun and exciting

Cons: If there is anything I don't like about Hi5, it has been the overall speed of the platform. Unfortunately the more information, staff and Hi5s you have, means the platform slows down - taking longer to load.

Pros: Easy to use and all hi5's are visible for everyone to see, so the recognition is clear. Backing other hi5's makes it possible to have a single hi5 reason with multiple votes instead of multiple hi5's that relate to the same thing.

Cons: All operations that wait for the server to complete consume too much of the user's time. The frontend of backend processing needs to be speeded up

Overall: Recognition of effort and jobs well done, as well as a means to offer the same recognition to others

Pros: Simple to explain the idea of giving Hi5. We have created a monthly competition where the person who receives most hi5's wins a prize. Keeps employees engaged and on a path to excellence.

Cons: No reporting on app - need to go to web for that. Not a deal breaker but would nice to see some stats on the go.

Overall: Highly engaged employees and don't need to waste time on pointless long-winded performance reviews from the 1990s.

Hi Geoff!

WOW thanks for this amazing review! Although we'd like to keep the apps as simple and easy to use as possible, we are definitely looking into adding some of the reporting features!

Keep Hi5'ing,

Hi Granville!

We love the feedback you've given about adding more emotion to recognition!

Did you know that you can add images, animated GIFs & Giphy's, as well as emoji's to your Hi5's?

If you haven't tried these features just yet, let me know and I'll be more than happy to show you how!

Pros: it's easy to use, you can give hi-5s to anyone for just about anything (that brings value into your life)

Cons: we're only limited to giving 10 hi-5s a month. would like to sometimes give a few more. There's always someone worthy of receiving an acknowledgement.

Hi Palesa!

Thanks so much for leaving this review :D

I see you've listed in the cons that you can only give out 10 Hi5's? We recently published an update which gives everyone 5 x Hi5's per week! If you haven't given out all your Hi5's for the week, you lose them. You get a new batch every Monday morning.

You can use the Give Gauge (under the My Status tab) to keep track of how many Hi5's you have left to give.

Let me know if you have any questions - I'm happy to help!

Warm regards,
Sharné

Pros: I like this software because it is user friendly at the same time keeping our information data as private.

Cons: I don't like the fact that there is another App called Hi5 and it confuses with this one. Maybe a change of name will be nice and not confuse people to downloading/registering on a dating site.

Overall: Constant Recognition and Awards

Hi Mpho!

Thanks so much for your rating :) We really appreciate the time you took to do this.

Unfortunately we can't get hi5 (the dating app) to rename themselves... ;)

All jokes aside, we value your input and will keep this in mind for future!

Pros: It's very easy to use, everything is self explanatory and the phone and computer app work equally as well as one another.

Cons: I haven't really come across anything i don't like. Perhaps maybe our company could implement the product better but the actual Hi5 itself is fantastic.

Overall: Within our organization, Hi5 has sought to replace the standard 360 degree review and serves as a successful HR alternative. I think it's great in giving feedback.
